Part of a larger research program to determine the principles of effective production and utilization of filmic instructional devices, this paper deals with activities in Great Britain, Canada, and Australia. Activities in each of these countries form the basis for each of the three chapters of this report. The chapter on Great Britain describes: The British tradition in documentary films, instructional films during the war, instructional films in education, the use of instructional films in universities, instructional film research, the producers of instructional films, and organizations interested in promoting the development of instruction films. It ends with references and an appendix describing the technique of factual film production in Great Britain. The report on Canada discusses the National Film Board of Canada and its functions, production facilities, the distribution and exhibition of films, and the documentary tradition. The chapter on Australia comprises reports on audiovisual aids in military training and in education, and concludes with references. (GO)
